The Seattle Malaria Clinical Trials Center is an exciting program primarily based at Fred Hutch within the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division (VIDD). The Fred Hutch, home to one of the world's largest research facilities, is home to the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division (VIDD) and the Fred Hutch Prevention Center. VIDD has an overall research management structure with a documented track record to efficiently contract and facilitate complex international clinical research. VIDD is committed to support the malaria research activities and leverage related Fred Hutch programs. The Prevention Center contains a clinical facility that conducts study interviews, collects medical history and physical exam data, and supports bio specimen collection for single-facility or custom multiple-facility use studies.The Seattle Malaria Clinical Trials (Seattle MCTC) is a translational research center established by Fred Hutch and the Center for Infectious Disease Research (CIDR) to test experimental malaria vaccines and drugs in human clinical trials. The Seattle MCTC conducts malaria clinical research studies focused on preventing and treating malaria. We hope to one day develop vaccines that may prevent people from getting malaria and to limit malaria disease and deaths around the world.Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases.

At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, teams of world-renowned scientists and humanitarians work together to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other diseases. Researchers are discovering new ways to detect cancers earlier, improve treatments, and learn how to prevent cancers from growing. Although Fred Hutchinson opened its doors in 1975, its history began about 20 years before ...that. In 1962 Fred Hutchinson envisioned a center devoted to studying cancer, a disease that took his brother’s life. Today Fred Hutchinson is contributing to the next waves of breakthrough treatments and prevention strategies. Fred Hutchinson collaborates with the Seattle Cancer Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, and the University of Washington.
